If True North’s Anthony Furey had it his way, the best relationship between the government and the media would be no relationship at all.
Unfortunately, the Trudeau government is likely going forward with the $600-million media bailout package.
Last week, Anthony was invited to appear as a witness at the House of Commons Finance committee to share his thoughts about the media bailout package. He summarizes his presentation to the committee in his latest video.
We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.
Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.
How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.
This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
